CHAPTER I. A Wayfarer. It was a bitterly cold night in the month of November, 1330. The rain was pouring heavily, when a woman, with a child in her arms, entered the little village of Southwark. She had evidently come from a distance, for her dress was travel-stained and muddy. She tottered rather than walked, and when, upon her arrival at the gateway on the southern side of London Bridge, she found that the hour was past and the gates closed for the night, she leaned against the wall with a faint groan of exhaustion and disappointment

I give it 4 stars because the history is absolutely correct. The story, however, was mediocre at best.

Thank you

100 years war in a nutshell. Complex subject yet entertaining, albeit a typical Henry story line, still a good read
Gigafish
This book has exciting adventure, authentic details, and is one of Henty's best books. Henty was English and very patriotic. If you want the French point of view, don't read this book.

Great read.....exciting adventure which is keeping our interest and desire to continue and to finish the story to see where the plot line leads.

Well written historical story. A joy to read.

This genuine relic of 19th century imperial English propaganda masquerading as a history is suitable really for young boys under the age of 16 years. It is simplistic, rustic, with a quaint touch of romance that was probably quite becoming over a 100 years ago: but it is regrettably brief on and much real historically useful detail and long on whimsical storytelling. But a good tale for people without any real knowledge of these two very famous, if one sided, medieval battles where killing technology was very important and which kept the English embroiled in French politics and history for another couple of centuries.
